About Surviving Breast Cancer

Sur.viv.or. anyone who has been diagnosed with breast cancer. You are surviving! 

Our Story (SBC) was created in 2017 to help fill the gaps in breast cancer support, education and resources. It was founded by Laura Carfang, recently diagnosed at that time in her early 30’s, and has grown exponentially since, serving members in the global breast cancer community.  Over these past few years the SBC website has been visited by community members (over 1,000,000 page views) across 120+ plus countries, and Laura’s podcast, Breast Cancer Conversations has been listened to in over 80 countries. The SBC website has been translated into Spanish, French, Italian and Arabic. 


Leveraging technology and breaking down barriers to access and information, SBC puts the patient first, educating, encouraging and inspiring advocacy.  Community members are encouraged to participate in the various free programming, events and services and are all invited to contribute to resolving the growing needs of this population. 


All services, education, programming and events are free to those diagnosed with breast cancer, as well as their caregivers.

Our Approach

SBC serves as an educational and virtual community platform offering support and meeting patients and their families where they are on the continuum of a cancer diagnosis.


We combine evidence-based  medical research with the personal lived experiences of those we serve. From risk reduction strategies and prevention, to treatment, survivorship, living with a terminal diagnosis,  navigating end of life, and beyond, Surviving Breast Cancer is here for you every step of the way.
